Every mother wants only the best for her child.. And what could be better than personal experience? This is the experience that the mother of four children Elena Alekseevna Danilova shares with us.
Elena Danilova - or Lena, as she often calls herself - is the author of the method of early development, educational posters, educational tools for children and parents, as well as a set of sports exercises for the youngest.
And Elena writes books for children and about children. Light and fascinating, its publications contain a lot of examples from the lives of mothers of many children, therefore, they are always perceived with interest by readers.
Elena Danilova began to make her first parental discoveries with the birth of her eldest son. Thanks to motherhood, she was fascinated by the ideas of early development: she read many different authors, compared their approaches, created toys for the child with her own hands, and invented educational games.
Perhaps due to the fact that Helen's firstborn was a rather lively baby, the basic principle of her author's method "Give the child freedom to move." In her books, Elena Danilova emphasizes that parents should definitely encourage the innate reflexes of the baby, trying to crawl, walk, grab and touch everything, try to hold and pull.
Each mother will easily master Elena Danilova’s method and will be able to easily use her principles at home, literally since the birth of a baby.
Important: to teach the child what he is already ready for, gradually complicating his studies, and not speeding up his development. After all, each child has his own pace of development.
In order for a child to master his movements better and faster, it is important to prepare an active environment for him: a variety of exercises and games that will contribute to the improvement of motor skills and the development of coordination.
For this purpose, Elena Danilova developed a series of sports complexes "Early Start", which was created taking into account all the physiological features of the child. Classes can be started on it from the first days of his child’s life.
The Early Start complex has a unique frame design that can be used in 5 different positions: a universal gym mat, a slide track with soft protective sides, a gymnastic trapezium. All the crossbars are of a special size so that they are comfortable to be wrapped around with a tiny handle. And the distance between the crossbars is small, which allows the baby to easily reach them, get off and re-climb.
According to the author Elena Danilova, such a sports-gaming system will help the kid learn how to get up, walk and crawl.
